“Fundamental Problems of Solid State Ionics” (FPSSI),
The creation of a large number of new materials with high ionic conductivity, mixed electron-ionic conductors, the development and use of new methods for studying nanoscale materials and heterogeneous boundaries has led to a significant increase in both fundamental and applied work in this area.
In recent years, there has been an increasing interest in superionic conductors and devices based on them, such as: fuel cells, batteries, supercapacitors, sensors for analyzing gas and water environments, etc.
The relevance of this trend is confirmed by the publication of a number of international journals (Ionics, Solid State Ionics, Solid State Electrochemistry, Solid State Communication, Sensors & Actuators, etc.) and regular conferences. The most significant international conferences in this field are: International Conference on Solid State Ionics – SSI, International Conference on Solid State Protonic Conductors – SSPC, International Symposium on Systems with Fast Ionic Transport – ISSFIT (in 2012, the 10th anniversary ISSFIT conference was held in Russia at the Institute of Problems of Chemical Physics of the Russian Academy of Sciences in Chernogolovka) and the International Conference “Fundamental Problems of Solid State Ionics”.
Thanks to these seminars, a community of scientists involved in ion transport issues has been organized. The traditions of these seminars were resumed in 1994, and the meetings of the series “Fundamental Problems of Solid State Ionics” began to take place every two years in Chernogolovka, as one of the leading research centers on this problem in Russia.
